Dr. Marois is qualified to perform a no needle, no scalpel vasectomy, also known as a keyhole vasectomy, at his urology clinics in Greater Montreal and Quebec City.
Usually, the first step for patients seeking a vasectomy is to schedule an initial consultation. During this appointment, the patient fills out a short questionnaire, undergoes a physical examination and is given details about the procedure. Afterward, a second appointment is scheduled for the vasectomy. This take two separate appointments, and involved fees for consultation AND surgery.
Alternatively, patients can have both the initial exam and the vasectomy during a single appointment. However, this is only possible if the exam is normal and the patient does not have a bold disorder or has stopped taking blood thinners.
For your convince and preferences, we offer both possibilities.
Note that Dr. Marois will have to perform the vasectomy with two incisions if the patient is overweight, has a small scrotum, has a short vas deferens or has already had a surgery in his genital area (such as a vasovasostomy).
We recommend that the patient be accompanied by another person. When patients have someone with them, they can be offered medication if they begin to feel anxious.
Furthermore, we recommend that the patient avoid drinking coffee or taking any other stimulants on the morning of the vasectomy and that the patient wears tight- fitting underwear for better support.
Please note that the vasectomy procedure is performed in an unaffiliated private clinic and can’t be reimbursed through the Regie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ). The confirmation of the patient’s sterility is sent by email after receipt of the results of the spermogram. If, in some rare cases, a second vasectomy should be necessary, we will proceed at 50% the regular price.
Please note that vasectomies are only performed in a disaffiliated private clinic and therefore not covered by the RAMQ. They are usually carried out in a single appointment. This includes consultation and infertility notification by email after reception of the spermogram’s results.
Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you require his professional services, you will have to pay directly the Cliniques Marois for the services rendered.
To ensure the smooth running of the clinics aa well as a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and staff members, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for cancelling an appointment, 5 working days for cancelling a minor surgery in the office and 21 working days for major surgery at the CMC. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
Change of appointment:
We understand that events occur and schedules change, so we ask patients to give us at least a 24-hour notice for any changes of appointment. We will be happy to reschedule another one for you. Failure to provide such notice within this timeframe will result in a $ 100 fee.
Thank you for your understanding.
